Typical Treatment Systems

In a typical combination treatment system for soluble and insoluble oil removal (see Figure 7.43.1), the soluble oils are precipitated by coagulants, elevated pH, and coagulant aids. Both soluble and insoluble oils are separated in the combination flotation and settling tank. The effluent may require recarbonation with appropriate pH control before being discharged to a receiving stream.

Figure 7.43.2 shows a system for chemical treatment with separation and recovery of oil and ferric sulfate. The proper application of chemical treatment methods can result in satisfactory separation and removal of oil from liquid waste.
